Women’s Balcony

Sunday, February 4, 3pm Dir. Shlomit Nehama and Emil Ben-Shimon | Comedy, Drama 96 min. | Israel | 2016 Hebrew with English subtitles

An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a gender rift in a devout Orthodox community in Jerusalem, in this rousing, good-hearted tale about women speaking truth to patriarchal power. When the women’s balcony in an Orthodox synagogue collapses, leaving the rabbi’s wife in a coma and the rabbi in shock, the congregation falls into crisis. Charismatic young Rabbi David appears to be a savior after the accident, but slowly starts pushing his fundamentalist ways and tries to take control. This tests the women’s friendships and creates an almost Lysistrata-type rift between the community’s women and men. Nominated for five Israeli Academy Awards, this is one not to miss.

Tickets: $10/ $8 member, 65+, under 30
